Who's that womyn with those red shoes? Who plays those really great bass lines throughout Living in Clip? Why that's Sara Lee! Sara Lee played the bass guitar for ms. difranco for one year. Those familiar with the Indigo Girls know why. Sara has been playing with the Indigo Girls (affectionately known as IG and compromised of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers)
since their third release, Nomads.Indians.Saints. This is also where ms. lee can be found at the moment. Perhaps you saw her on the The Rosie O'Donnell Show strutting her stuff while Amy and Emily sang
Shame on You from their new release Shaming of the Sun. There are rumours that Sara departed from ani because of a feud. Totally false and don't even waste your breath! The Indigo Girls just had the right to have their bassist back!
Sara can be heard playing the bass on the following albums;
Living in Clip - Ani DiFranco Shaming of The Sun - Indigo Girls Live: Back On The Bus Y'all - Indigo Girls Swamp Ophelia - Indigo Girls Rites of Passage - Indigo Girls 1200 Curfews - Indigo Girls Nomads.Indians.Saints - Indigo Girls Tidal - Fiona Apple Songs of the Free - Gang of Four Brief History of the Twentieth Century - Gang of Four Hard - Gang of Four Phantom Center - Ferron Bewitched - Andy Summers Be Careful What You Wish For - Kristen Hall Fact and Fiction - Kristen Hall League of Gentlemen - League of Gentlemen Thrang Thrang Gozinbulx - League of Gentlemen Buffy The Vampire Slayer Good Stuff - B-52's Cosmic Thing - B-52's Shag - Shag God Save The King - Robert Fripp Williams Bothers - Williams Borthers Groovy Decay - Robyn Hitchcock

READ the SPOTLIGHT on Sara from an Indigo Girls Tour Book!
Ani once stated there was going to be merchandise featuring Sara's face with the words "Band Slut" on it, on the back would be listed all the bands she's appeared with....
Amy Ray can be heard constantly introducing the lovely miss. lee as the "fashion consultant" or the "always fashionable" miss. sara lee...you decide...
(Note from fan about Sara Lee, who played with Ani DiFranco last year,
read by Ani during San Francisco 'Maritime' show 27 June 96):
"I like you well enough, but your bass-player is the love of my life. When I see her, my teeth itch, my hair hurts... and I must have her!"
Some of these photos have been stolen from the Lilith Fair Site...much more remain there, please go!
And one beautiful picture of Sara has been taken from this amazing site.
